Blog Tour: Guest Post: Songbird by Victoria Escobar

By- Victoria Escobar
Genre- New Adult Contemporary Romance

Bianca ran from her past with the hope of being forgotten. Instead of living her dreams, she wasted her skills at a famous entertainment hall in Nashville. An offer to wrangle country music’s infamous bad boy, Nicholas Walker, proved too good to refuse.

However, life on the road presented its own challenges. Walker acted like an overgrown toddler that missed his nap. The band supported her takeover but the massive crew protested answering to a woman. On top of tip toeing around egos, discretion needed to be maintained while feeding Walker’s infamous sexual appetite.

She never expected Walker to focus his wandering eyes on her. When her past returned fighting Walker didn't seem as vital as keeping him alive. Walking away should be easy, but first they must all make it through unharmed.



Are you a Plotter or a Pantser?

Depending on the story and situation I’m a bit of both. There are times that a picture, phrase or writing prompt will spark an idea and I’ll sit down and write until all the words are done. Usually that’s about ten to twenty thousand words later and I have to figure out what’s going on next. Sometimes I’ll plot the rest of it, and sometimes the characters won’t give me what I need until the scene is up for dictation.

There are also times when I sit down with a single lonely character and figure out who they are, why they are who they are, who their nemesis, why their nemesis is their nemesis. What the conflict is; how do we fix the conflict… sometimes I even have to do body counts to determine if my characters have gone a little overboard with the killing. All this is done on index cards and then I write out (on one index card) ten scenes that have to happen to get from the starting line to the end.

Then there are times where it’s a combination of both and the scene I dumped twenty thousand words for is actually the end (Songbird did that to me). Those characters made it really fun to try and figure out how do I get there when I don’t even know where we started at.

My writing process is constantly evolving as I learn new things and as I grow more and more comfortable with my craft. I always have index cards handy just in case, and I have a writing app on my phone in case I need to word dump. The characters and the story to be told define how the writing is done. I’m only along for the ride.
